Plump, Full Pouty Lips are all the rage…By Beverly Hills plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Francis R. Palmer, III.

Plump, Full Pouty Lips are all the rage…By Beverly Hills plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr. Francis R. Palmer, III.

Here’s a picture, courtesy of Corbis Images, that demonstartes beautiful lips. They are full and plump. More importantly, they have the proper ratio of size between the upper and lower lips of 75%/100%. Another way of saying that the lower lip should appear pouty….and thus larger than the upper lip. The upper lip should be no more than 75% the size of the lower lip. As the upper lip becomes larger than this magical 75%, it takes on that Ducky-look that screams….”My Lips have been done…and badly at that”.

Ok so what are your choices for that perfect set of smackers….there’s a bunch of topical creams and lip balms promising to pucker your pout but what can they really do? Not much, it turns out…..other than offer your lips a temporary increase in size caused by temporary swelling.

If you’re looking for more lasting lucious lips, you should consider Alloderm. It’s a soft-tissue replacement that can be done thru 2 small openings in the corner of each mouth as an office procedure. The material is soft, pliable and when placed above the lip muscle gives soft, naturally looking augmentation to the lips.

I have performed hundreds of these procedures over the past 12 years or so and feel that this is the gold-standard for Lip Augmentation and Enhancement. The material lasts about 7 years at which time it can be repeated. Read more here: http://www.beverlyhills-plasticsurgery.com/LipAugmentation.html
